Your SF Pride Weekend in Three Boozy Brunches

Every year at the beginning of summer San Francisco braces itself for Pride. Over the course of the last weekend in June San Francisco is transformed into a city-wide festival to celebrate LGBT Pride Month.

As Pride Weekend approaches, as well as the prospect of spending two-days ringing in the festivities, consider treating yourself to three booze-laden brunches. The perfect way to start your day off before heading to the parade, the festival, or one of the many parties going on throughout the city.

This self described “cozy eatery” nestled between the Mission and the Castro offers up a variety of Californian fare with Asian influences. The food here is compulsively Instagramable, and equally mouth-watering. Favorites include the marscapone stuffed deep-fried French toast, or the Millionaire’s Way bacon (thick cut bacon, rubbed with cayenne pepper and brown sugar, baked for 4 hours, then drizzled with maple syrup).

Even if you don’t come here for brunch, their daily happy hour promises $5 drinks and appetizers.

This centrally-located Castro-favorite makes it the perfect place to start off your day before heading to the parade or the festival. Although with brunch offerings as tantalizing as challah French toast, loco mocos, chicken and waffles, and a beautiful and serene dining patio you might just be tempted to skip the festivities and spend the rest of your day here.

With brunch served 7 days a week, Starbelly is the top destination for any serious San Francisco bruncher.
